The Lives of The Objects

$40.00
Here, ten world-renowned curators from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London tell the story of ten of the most famous and curious objects acquired by the museum over its history. Among these are “Tipu’s Tiger,” an almost life-size wooden mechanical toy of a tiger mauling a European soldier; the “Great Bed of Ware,” a 10 1/2-foot-wide Elizabethan bed; and a “Shakespeare First Folio,” one of the few survivors of an estimated 750 that were originally printed. Learn too about collection building and how careful curation and fortuitous optimism drive and change museum priorities over time.
